from MSNBC, by way of Atrios “Had I been reading to children and had my top aide whisper in my ear that America is under attack, I would have told those kids very nicely and politely that the president of the United States has something he needs to attend to.” John Kerry
Ok, I admit that I have a particular bee in my bonnet over Bush’s 7 minutes of inaction after he was told that country was under attack. But after all, the man is supposed to be our Commander in Chief. I cannot conceive of another person who has held that office reacting by doing nothing. At the very least, I would have expected some damned curiosity about what the hell was going on. But he sat there. He just sat there. Thank you, John Kerry. And thank you, Michael Moore, for opening the door for Kerry to make this statement. It is about time.
